World Potato Congress president, Romain Cools, has been asked to participate at the 11th African Potato Association Conference in Kigali, Rwanda, in August 2019. Cools is expected to present WPC’s Potato Value Chain Toolbox. This toolbox was developed following WPC’s participation at the 2016 African Potato Association conference in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. The WPC Toolbox was designed to address, in specific ways, the needs of individuals and communities by providing assistance in improving lives through the improvement of the potato value chain. In some contexts, it is also seen as a way to alleviate poverty.
